Winter Treasures: Salamanders, Lichen, Mosses...
10:00 AM
Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Description:
Winter is newt breeding season! Join us as we walk through the sublime beauty of sage green lichen on burgundy Manzanita bark and moss bedecked oaks down to the 25-foot dramatic plunge of Sonoma Creek. Beginning at the Visitor Center, we’ll follow Pony Gate Trail’s grassy slope, into mixed evergreen forest, along Canyon Trail’s shady riparian corridor (with the promise of Pacific Giant Salamanders) to the waterfall. The return takes us back uphill, across Adobe Canyon Road to the now familiar Pony Gate trail.
This stroll is approximately 2 miles with 450-foot elevation gain. Tickets are $10 for general admission, or $5 for Sugarloaf members, volunteers, seniors, students, and minors. Heavy rain or wind cancels and will be announced the day of the hike. Parking fees apply. Be prepared to follow County Health guidelines such as physical distancing or mask wearing.
